Alexander Mcqueen's Skull Tribute

Alexander McQueen's iconic skull-print scarf has been "flying off the shelves" since news of his death broke yesterday (11.02.10).

Fans of the designer - who was found dead in his London home after committing suicide - are desperate to get hold of his designs especially the £200 silk piece, which has been worn by the likes of Kate Moss, Liv Tyler and Nicole Richie.

Kate Brindley, head of press at the London department store Liberty, said: "The response was immediate. At about 4pm, just after the news broke, all of our Alexander McQueen stock started flying off the shelves.

"The scarf was such an iconic piece of his design."

Another popular item was the black shoulder-pad T-shirt from his summer collection.

Anne Pitcher, buying and merchandising director at Selfridges, added: "We fully expect customers to want to buy something by him - anything - to keep as a memento, but also as a genuine tribute to his craft and spirit."

McQueen died at the age of 40, just days after the death of his beloved mother.

Some of the biggest names in fashion have paid tribute to him including Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Karl Lagerfeld.
